The OPP and provincial government are attempting to change the way we pay for policing in Ontario. If this proposed new billing model is implemented, The Municipality of Charlton and Dack's policing costs would double from approximately $48,267 annually to $104,058. To cover this enormous cost increase of almost $56,000, we would require a 12.4% tax increase or a significant cut to our services.
Our Council is strongly opposed to this new model and believe the potential cost impacts to be completely unacceptable and unaffordable in our rural municipality. The provincial government is being extremely unfair to the property taxpayers in rural Ontario and we are asking that you partner with us to get our voices heard at Queen's Park.
